GOP Lawmakers Voice Little Support For Trump's Tariffs

In the event of a breakdown over NAFTA, these tariffs would likely bring swift retaliatory tariffs on USA goods imported into Canada. He insisted that domestic metals production was vital to national security. "The last time that the United States imposed tariffs on steel imports in 2002, 200,000 jobs were lost", Peck said. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that Canada and Mexico may get a special "carve-out" that would protect them from the tariffs.

"The so-called "carve out" of Canadian steel and aluminum tariffs would allow US trade negotiators to have what a senior administration official described as "ongoing discussions" about various issues between the three countries", CBC reporter Pete Evans writes.

"In addition, the tariffs if imposed on steel and aluminum from key trading partners will likely lead to retaliation in the form of higher tariffs on USA exports which could escalate into a trade war that nearly all economists agree would have a very negative impact on the global economy", Peck said.

Trump offered relief from steel and aluminium tariffs to countries that "treat us fairly on trade", a gesture aimed at putting pressure on Canada and Mexico to give ground in separate talks on renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The statement doubled-down on similar comments earlier on Thursday that Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo made prior to Trump's announcement. "All countries will be welcome to discuss with the United States alternate ways to address the threatened impairment of national security caused by imports", a senior administration official.

The freshman collected 11 of those board and both scored 8 points. "Next man up is our mentality. In the Jayhawks' last matchup, they were victorious over the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 82-68.

European Union Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said: "The EU is a close ally of the U.S. and we continue to be of the view that the EU should be excluded from these measures". But in particular, the administration's correct decision to exempt Canada and Mexico from the new tariffs nearly assures that the policies will fail to meet the Department of Commerce's capacity targets for the steel and aluminum industries. "I will seek more clarity on this issue in the days to come".

President Trump explained, "America will remain open to modifying or removing the tariffs for individual nations as long as we can agree on a way to ensure that their products no longer threaten our security".

USA steel- and aluminum-consuming industries sharply criticized the tariffs as damaging them with higher costs.

"Our industries have been targeted for years and years by unfair foreign trading practices", Trump said at the signing ceremony, "And that's going to stop".
